>> now, donald trump just this morning said that the comparison between him and hitler is perposturous. he claims that 25% of muslims polled recently believes that violence against the u.s. in the united states can justified. he cites that from the center for security policy, which is a conservative think tank. but 86% of muslims in the u.s., when they were polled in 2011 by the pew research center said rarely justified and 48% said their own religious leaders have not done enough to decry islamic extremists. also more on donald trump's reaction to the comparison with him. laura? >> pretty strong words there. thank you very much. 5:04 right now. last night the grieving san bernardino community came together once again in an attempt to heal in the wake of last night's terror attacks. some attendies lit candles for each one of the 14 victims

5:07 am
pay increase and the district is operating in the red and only afford 1.5% raise. a strike is very possible. some parents are pulling their kids out of school to send a very clear message. >> my whole point is to hopefully make an impression to the school district that we do not want to go on strike. >> my message is pulling children out of school will not change our budget conditions. it will make it worse. >> and it district is, in fact, loses tens of thousands of dollars. each student that misses school will and altogether yesterday we're talking about four times the normal number of absences and more than 1,200 reported in one day and that totals more than $44,000 the district lost, again, in just one day. we're talking about it happening for a second day. happen at 10:00 this morning. live here in san lorenzo,

5:12 am
5:13 am
olympic sprinter oscar pistorius bail -- despite his murder conviction. =vo= this a judge this morning granted oscar pistorius bail this despite a doubmurder conviction. his bail is 10,000 south african rand which is the equivalent of a little less than $700 u.s. this came after a court hearing overturned his manslaughter conviction saying he murdered
5:14 am
his girlfriend. he faces 15 years in prison when he's sentenced in april. his attorneys say he's going to appeal that new murder conviction to the south african supreme court. it is 5:15. we could soon learn more about a terror alert system here in the u.s. jay johnson announced a new system will better inform the public about threats to the united states. he says the intelligence community does a good job of thwarting attacks he planned overseas, but domestic terror attacks are more difficult to detect. more details about the alert system are expected to be revealed in the coming days. of all the strategies being discussed can you defeat terrorism by turning off the internet. >> something donald trump would like to try. not the most bizarre thing you said last week. but this idea of turning off the internet shows about a as much sophistication trump in the same speech in which he suggested banning muslims said he wanted to meet with bill gates to
5:15 am
"close up the internet." what precisely he meant by that is not clear and presuming you could clear up the internet, not sure what gates would have to do with that gates had nothing to do with the operation of the internet. one of the early criticism of gates is how badly he had underestimated the nrlt net. a study conducted by uber said uber drivers like uber probably not a surprise. but the number of drivers has more than doubled in the last year. that's amazing. 400,000 people now drive for uber, at least a few hours a week and a third of all the brand-new uber drivers who started in the past three months are women. let's check your news before the bell. landon dowdy is live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning. >> good morning, scott. the markets see more red arrows after stocks fell monday and closed off their lows and lower ahead of the opening bell and the energy sector leading the

5:17 am
clement street. the latest water bottling station. if you're counting, they're now up to 69 of those stations with the goal being 100 throughout the city. this one located on clemente and third avenue. today's unveiling coincides with tonight's holiday stroll, an event organized by clemente street merchants. a storm on the bay area. dangerously large waves will crash on to nearby beaches. this is what pacifica looked like yesterday. high surf and strong rip tides have life guards on alert this morning. talking about those rip tides in 20-foot-tall waves yesterday. >> there you go. >> there you. >> what have we got going on today, a lot of fog and rain. >> thoses aren't going to be as high today. if you are headed to the beach, even though it is cloudy and dreary and maybe one of the hard-core surfers.

5:32 am
onboard the "uss yorktown" calling for a complete and other shut down based on his contention large number of. now, earlier this month, trump called for surveillance on all mosques and for muslims to have to register with the government. democrats are decrying that as unamerican and even republican candidates are distancing themselves, as well. this here is a multi-faith rally that was held outside the office in san jose and in attendance were members of the bay area chapter of care islamic relations who say they have gotten phone calls from people telling them to go home. telling them to go and die. the national leader of that council responded frankly saying that donald trump is playing right into the hands of radical islamists. >> they have no respect for human life. we have to do something. don'ty about profiling. i promise i will defend you from profiling. >> his ideas are not just
5:33 am
unconstitutional. they are unamerican. this rhetoric echoes the policies enacted by nazi germany against the jews. have we learned anything from history, mr. trump? >> donald trump claims that 25% of all muslims polled violence against the u.s. in the u.s. is justified. but he takes that statistic from the center for security policy. it is a conservative think tank. now, trump also cites pew research data. i couldn't find his specific statistics but their data from a poll shows that 86% of u.s. muslims say suicide bombing are rarely or never justified and that 48% of muslims say their religious leaders have not done enough to decry islamic extremists. now, donald trump says the u.s. is now at war with muslim extremists and that means everything is on the table. laura? >> boy, strong words out there, thank you very much, kris. 5:33 right now. last night the grieving san
